Sneaker Recycling

Give new life to those old, beat up sneakers!

Nike’s Reuse-a-Shoe program turns worn-out athletic shoes of any brand into Nike Grind, a material used in sport tracks, courts and playgrounds.

Please note:

  • Only athletic shoes such as running shoes, sneakers, etc.
  • Sneakers cannot contain any metal (grommets, eyelets, zippers, rivets, etc.).
  • Sneakers cannot be in plastic bags, tied together or light-up.
  • No cleats, spikes, boots, shoes, flip-flops, sandals, clogs, crocs, etc.

Find locations on the Nike Reuse-a-Shoe website.  Also, check the list of items currently being collected for recycling or reuse by ColorBrightonGreen.
